great book This was a gift, but I did have a quick look through and it seemed great for people that like this sort of thing I wouldn t say there is an age range on it.
Ever wondered how Superman could leap tall buildings in a single bound Or how Aquaman or Prince Namor the Sub Mariner could breath underwater Or how Iceman s powers work never mind Iron Man s armor Well wonder no the second edition of James Kakalios s The Physics Of Superheroes I hope there will be a third, forth and five editions the subject of physics and superheroes is literally endless answers all these and many other questions.
Much like The Law of Superheroes, Kakalios answers questions that have intrigued nerds for decades such as whether it is possible for Ant Man and the Atom to shrink down to sub atomic sizes the answer is not yet and quite possibly never.
Bought for my son and he loved it Packed full of really interesting info and made him want to watch all the super hero movies.
much to his girlfriends annoyance
Got this as a christmas present for a nephew His mother says that when he opened it he said that it was one of the only christmas books he d actually read A few months later when I asked him he said he d read it all the way through for this particular nephew that s pretty high praise.
